You can never get rid of those dark circles under your eyes. This does not mean that you cannot lessen their unsightly appearance. Here are proven ways on how you can address those dark circles under your eyes.
It is important to determine what is causing these dark circles to appear. The aging process is one culprit. It can also be because of a post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This can be due to sun damage, chronic rubbing, or heredity. Allergic reaction, lack of sleep, or eating salty foods can also exacerbate these dark circles.
Apply an appropriate sunscreen on the skin under your eyes. While sunscreen will not lessen the darkness of the circles, it can help prevent the dark spots from getting worse.
Pick the right brightening skin care product. These products should contain vitamin C, niacinamide, and bearberry extract. These can help brighten up the skin under the eyes. You may also want to use products with anti-inflammatory properties.
Invest in a good hydrating eye cream. Choose those that contain glycerin or hyaluronic acid. They are perfect for improving the hydration of the skin around the eyes.
Apply a richly-pigmented cream formulation of concealer. Creams adhere to your skin a lot better than liquid formulations. This should help ‘mask’ those dark circles.
